Publisher's Description

This edition of J.R.R. Tolkien's classic is illustrated with 48 paintings by noted artist Michael Hague.

Bilbo Baggins is a hobbit who enjoys a comfortable, unambitious life, rarely traveling any farther than his pantry or cellar. But his contentment is disturbed when the wizard Gandalf and a company of dwarves arrive on his doorstep one day to whisk him away on an adventure. They have launched a plot to raid the treasure hoard guarded by Smaug the Magnificent, a large and very dangerous dragon. Bilbo reluctantly joins their quest, unaware that on his journey to the Lonely Mountain he will encounter both a magic ring and a frightening creature known as Gollum.

Written for J.R.R. Tolkien's own children, The Hobbit has sold many millions of copies worldwide and established itself as a modern classic.

    My daughter does not usually like 'big' books, but got so engrossed in this version of The Hobbit that we signed out of the public library, that I had to buy it for her to enjoy over and over. The paintings really give an excellent and timeless story that extra bit of life.
